Astronomers spotted an asteroid just hours before it struck Earth Saturday morning (November 19, 2022), near Lake Erie in Canada.

This is not the first time this year astronomers have discovered a rock from space just hours before it hit Earth.

Western University in Canada said that meteorites may have reached the ground near the southern shore of Lake Ontario, mainly to the north of St.

What we need now to complete this story is to recover some of these rocks and find out what kind of material made up asteroid 2022 WJ1.

Looks like a space rock is going to fall into Lake Erie area in ~2 hours (about 3:30 am EST).

He shared the link for NASA’s Center for Near Earth Object Studies Hazard Assessment page.

The object, C8FF042, is now removed from the page because it has struck Earth and is therefore no longer a threat.

EST, Richard Moissl tweeted that the asteroid should impact around 8:26 UTC, which translates to 3:26 a.m.

That’s north of Lake Erie; west of Buffalo, New York; east of Detroit and southwest of Toronto.

Those few hours of lead time were enough that some were able to capture C8FF042 with telescopes

Bill Gray has the impact point at 19 Nov 2022 8:26:54.47 UTC, lat +43.12309, lon W80.26416, which is directly over Brantford, Ontario, Canada

The object will have a very grazing impact of just 10-12 degrees or so, and should be travelling WSW To ENE between Detroit and Buffalo

Last night, newly-discovered asteroid #C8FF042 flew over the United States before impacting Earth near the Great Lakes
